Trends Inspired By The Alps
Christmas soon, here are some details and ideas to borrow from the South Tyrolean! Plus the local organic cosmetics: Trehs. I discovered this brand at the Vigilius Mountain Resort (last picture). What a fancy christmas log!
Pictures above: heart for curtain (picture 1) and ceiling covered with antlers (picture 2) in the restaurant of the Golf & Spa Resort Andreus.
Pictures below: home sweet home of Heidi. So real one of the Schloss Hotel Korb suite (photo 4). And picture 5: the old mural of the Cathedral of San Paolo.

time to get out of the boat and leave the port area (by walk, really not my best idea!), it’s already been 2:30 pm (photo 2). My “first” time in Barcelona for 3 hours in the city only!
And I decided to discover the different areas by the Barcelona City Tour bus tour, the red tour which lasts 3:30 minimum! So be careful!
You can get off the bus to take another one, as many times as you want during 24 or 48 hours and change the tour (red, green or blue). I need flexibility as an independent traveller.
Unfortunately I don’t have enough time
to go visiting some of the many sites. But I do an exception for La Pedrera, a house designed by the famous architect Gaudi (pictures 1 & 3).
I take this opportunity to run to another iconic work of Gaudi, the Sagrada Familia which I see as facades by lack of time (pictures 4). But the magic doesn’t operate, I don’t like the exterior details and the imposing porch
I enjoyed more the quiet empty streets to get there. And I rush back to La Perdrera to jump in the bus, where I can see the facade of Casa Batllo (picture 5) of Gaudi.
Time flies: when finally I arrived at Las Ramblas,
the area reminds me of New York: the rythm, crowd and major intersections (picture below). At the statue of Christopher Columbus stop, I jumped into a taxi to the Costa Neo Romantica.
In 15 mn, at 6:15 pm the boat leaves the port! Bye bye Barcelona, I will come back for sure. I have a mixed feeling of having seen all and nothing. I need to come back… To be continued, next stop in…
And today question is: if you had a 3 hours stopover in Barcelona, what would you do or visit?
